EUR/USD – 1.1072 ( +47 or +0.43% ) The Euro caught a lot of people off guard last week. We covered this in LIVE TV and were not surprised by the action as those who tuned in may have noticed. For a move higher this week, we would like to see the EURO hold above 1.1033; followed by a break back above 1.1197. Should this occur, we could then see a move to 1.1249 before a pause. If the EURO cannot hold above 1.1033, we could see a move down into 1.0977 before a pause. If this market continues to sell-off, we could see a move down into 1.0902; however any break of this level may result in a sharp move down to 1.0814 before the week’s end.
GBP/USD – 1.2497 ( +214 or +1.74% ) Cable was very strong last week off the news that BoJo may be inching closer to a deal or soft-Brexit.

Should this occur, we will look for a move to 1.2868; and if momentum is very strong, we could see a stronger move into 1.3035. On the downside, a close below 1.2480 could see this market sell off strongly into 1.2350. Any further weakness below this level could see the Pound continue to slide down into 1.2297; and if momentum to the downside is very strong this week we cannot rule out a move to 1.2195.
USD/JPY – 106.92 ( +119 or +1.11% ) The $/YEN was also stronger last week as we saw this market continue to rally for the second straight week.

A strong break and close above this level could then see the $/YEN rally into 109.94, and if momentum is very strong we could see moves to 110.31 and 110.78. If we cannot close above 108.31, we could see a fast move lower into 107.75. A break below this level may result in a retest of 107.36 and this is where things get very interesting. A break below this level could mean a very sharp move down to 106.52.
